Recreating the PNC Park Pittsburgh Sandwich

I recently came across this online article about notable new concessions at ballparks, and instantly fell in love with the idea of Pittsburgh's Pulled Pork and Pierogi Stacker at PNC Park: "This tasty towering treat is a contestant in a Pirates fan poll this season at PNC Park. The stacker consists of pulled pork atop of a pretzel roll with caramelized onions and two potato pierogi for good measure."

As it turns out, I happened to have most of the ingredients for this sandwich.  In my freezer are pretzel rolls from Wegmans, mini pierogies from the grocery store, and my fridge held leftover BBQ brisket from the previous night's dinner.  So, besides the caramelized onions, I was good to go!


Mmmmmmmmm, Pittsburgh!  The idea of potato and cheese pierogies in a sandwich might seem weird to you, but FANTASTIC to me, haha.  The only issue is the brisket- since it was pretty dry on its own, obviously the real sandwich's pulled pork would be a better choice.  Overall though, I loved the idea of recreating a (bastardized) version of ballpark food :o)


  1. Omg LOVE this...I still need to create this!! Looks so good!

  2. Mmmm - Pierogies! Fun sandwich - and impressive you had all of that on hand!

  3. @Ashley: DO IT! haha

    @Shannon: Yeah it worked out really well that I went to a BBQ place the night before, haha.
